Oh, fark it.

Since when has "Mexican" become a bad word? Why did the news station feel it necessary to *bleep* that part out?

Mexican was completely bleeped, but "piece of shi.." wasn't. Only the "it" was bleeped.

Geddysciple: I was able to view it fine. Perhaps the problem is the chair-to-keyboard interface?

The guy that lives down the street from me is of Swedish decent. I used to say he was Swedish. But from this video I learned that Mexican is a bad word. So if someone's family is from Mexico, I will not call them Mexican. I also will not slander that guy down the road by calling him Swedish. I so want to be so PC. I have a question PC police. Gary Player (a "white" golfer) is from South Africa, is he a african-american? I only want to march in the right boot steps. Please help me.

I'd like to add a disclaimer to Stace's post above:

DISCLAIMER: residents of the civilized sections of our state do not share this opinion.
2001-12-12 11:03:03 PM  
Swedes are generally not PC Nazis.
Also, if they are born in America, they are Americans.
Now being a Mexican and being called a Mexican is a great insult and very not-PC.

"Swedes are generally not PC Nazis.

Please explain I am only learning. Maybe someone else can help me.

Dear Masses:

As your average white person of German/Scottish ancestry, I am disturbed by this. Calling the man "Mexican" becomes derogatory when saying it is not relevant. For example: If I call you a stupid jackass, that just means you are stupid jackass, but if I call you a stupid white jackass.. well, by add white, I am saying that your being white is part of the problem, along with you being a stupid jackass. See the difference? He had a problem with the man being Mexican or he would not have mentioned it. You can joke about it, but it makes it a fairly racist thing to say.

Just one more for clarity... I say, "Hey, get your car off my lawn, you freaking idiot." that is one thing. Contrast that with "Hey, get your car off my lawn, you stupid swede."

got broadband?
2001-12-12 11:12:36 PM  
Stace: I bet Native Americans felt the same way about white folks coming over here, breeding like rabbits and sucking up all they had. I bet they wished meatloaf and ham sandwiches were banned, too.

I live in Texas, as well. I live right on the border. In my professional opinion, you are ignorant as "goat shiat".
2001-12-12 11:14:28 PM  
What was so wrong with that? He just told the beaner to get another beer.
Kind of thoughtful of him actually.
2001-12-12 11:14:58 PM  
Funny how everyone is so proud of their heritage until you call 'em by it. Huh.
2001-12-12 11:16:41 PM  
and I would happily point out that the man's ethnicity has nothing to do with suggesting he go have another beer.
2001-12-12 11:16:56 PM  
Well put, Zaago.
2001-12-12 11:19:18 PM  

I suppose it is "funny" when it does not happen to you. Heritage and pride are not the issue. It is not about what being Mexican means to the man in the stands. It is about what the coach meant by pointing it out. The Mexican was probably OK with being Mexican. The man calling him a Mexican clearly was not happy with him being a Mexican at all. Or is that point lost on you?
2001-12-12 11:21:28 PM  
Prozac anyone?
2001-12-12 11:22:31 PM  
and finally, since it was the coach who was using the term "Mexican" and not about pride, but about him being unhappy with it... here we have a man unhappy with another man's ethnicity and expressing it in a rather derogatory way.

Kinda racists ain't it?
2001-12-12 11:22:55 PM  
Zaago - I'm glad you're so good at reading minds. You should have a tv show.

Zaago wins.

Judges decision is final. No correspondence will be entered into.

Jeez, Jim Rome played this about a dozen times this morning, kept saying he didn't want to keep playing it -but he kept playing it anyway, it got really annoying so I changed the station.
2001-12-12 11:26:14 PM  
On another point - when I was in Mexico they did have some damn good beer, maybe he was just saying go home and enjoy a nice refreshing brew. Is that so wrong?
2001-12-12 11:26:25 PM  
Zaggo please explain that last one I am confused.
2001-12-12 11:27:22 PM  
I assume by your comment Martel, that you had a broader point. Since I cannot read minds, I have no idea what that point would be. My observation is that in the context of the statement, the ethnicity of the man is irrelevant. It is my opinion that to add such an irrelevant comment is not meant to be kind toward "Mexicans". If you can think of another explanation, I am certainly interested in reading about it.
2001-12-12 11:29:13 PM  
boorish sports fans get way too much amnesty. players and coaches who respond equally as rude get a thumbs up from me. im fairly pc, but ill make exceptions.

pepito pea
2001-12-12 11:29:46 PM  

I am not certain what is missing.

Point, you are angry at the man, then you address the man, when you address the race or ethnicity, then you have other issues. Those are typically racial issues. The rest I have already said.
2001-12-12 11:30:03 PM  
I live in southern California and I just have to say, unlike the complete moron Stace, I love enchiladas and burrittos. Even tho I'm not mexican I cook them at least once or twice a week! Its good eats! Carne asada burrittos are almost better than potatoes.
2001-12-12 11:31:20 PM  
Mexican is not a race Zaago.
2001-12-12 11:33:27 PM  
Final analogy:

Somebody cuts you off in traffic.

If you say, "You dumbass, watch where you are going."

That is one thing.

If you say, "You stupid Mexican, watch where you are going."

Then the issue is not just that a man cut you off, the issue for you is that he was also Mexican.

You might be a racist if...
2001-12-12 11:34:01 PM  
you all suck
2001-12-12 11:34:40 PM  
What the hell, this isn't a PTA meeting. I'm not racist, but I thought that the coach was pretty damn funny.

I totally agree with Shanrick.. except for the beaner part.
2001-12-12 11:34:53 PM  
what do you call natives of Mexico?

I am up for learning something new here though...
2001-12-12 11:37:11 PM  

I said "Race OR ethnicity"

It IS an ethnicity.

eth·nic·i·ty (th-ns-t)
Ethnic character, background, or affiliation.
An ethnic group.

ethnic group n : people of the same race or NATIONALITY who share a distinctive culture

My work is done here.

For all who agree, thanks for your support.
For those of you who do not see the truth of it, that this man was being spiteful not at a man, but addressing an ethnic group, and that is racists, then you have a long road ahead of you.
2001-12-12 11:37:33 PM  
If Mexican becomes a bad word, than the terrorists won by a landslide.
2001-12-12 11:40:39 PM  
you call them: "hey get me a beer, you Mexican piece of shiat!"
2001-12-12 11:42:15 PM  
Dos cervesas por favor.
